Based on a survey of 1,000 Australian men aged 18 – 30, the report finds that rigid adherence to masculine norms has a stronger impact on negative life outcomes compared with occupation, where someone lives, sexuality, education level and cultural heritage. Negative life outcomes can include violence, sexual harassment, mental ill-health and binge drinking.
The panellists will discuss these findings, share how positive cultural change about what it means to be a man can be achieved, and explore the implications for governments and front-line practitioners.
